AMFPHP 1.9 beta 2 – so fassssssst

On 26th January Patrick posted about the new amfphp beta which, thanks to the Emanuele Ruffaldi‘s php module (you can get the binary and source files here), seems to be “ridiculously faster“.

I had 5 minutes today for testing it. Just a simple test with an array of 1,000 objects and using ServiceCapture in background to see the performance differences between the older amfphp version and this one.
The new amfphp version gave me these results (I has to say I had many other programs running in background…):

Type: amf
This request bundled all of the following service calls:
amfphp.getList()
Request: 697 bytes
Response: 15968 bytes
Total: 16665 bytes
Response Time: 0.19 seconds

while the older one:

Type: amf
This request bundled all of the following service calls:
amfphp.getList()
Request: 697 bytes
Response: 16967 bytes
Total: 17664 bytes
Response Time: 0.541 seconds

So, incredible faster 🙂
This new beta comes with onther features such as gzip support, better recordset support and ByteArray support… but I strongly suggest to read the full article on Patrick’s blog here:

  • Don’t forget the better php4 support 🙂

  • Hi Alessandro,
    Thanks for the info, I’ll test it asap 🙂

  • Any ideas what will happen with AMFPHP?
